Salinity Management and Soil Amendments for Southwestern Pecan Orchards
Managing salts in Southwestern pecan orchards can be a major challenge for growers, due to limited soil permeability and/or low-quality irrigation water. However, effective, long-term salt management is essential for maintaining productivity of pecan orchards. The challenge is to effectively manage soil salinity and sodium (Na) in a cost-effective manner, using appropriate combinations of irrigation management, soil management, and soil amendments.
